A Quiet Place has a clever, innovative premise: the Alien-style monsters can't see but have exceptional hearing, so the humans in the film have to be nearly wordless. And I remember it was one of the lines that when Emily read the script, that's why she did it. That was sooo a year ago.
A Quiet Place did not have a silent opening this weekend at the Box Office as the thriller managed to over-exceed expectations. It's possible to view the film as an allegory for parenting. "We're looking forward to what else (Krasinski) has up his sleeve". Couples starring together does not always signify doom. Her character worked under Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep), who was an editor-in-chief at the fictional Runway magazine. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie did it, and they ended in shambles. Even Porky's way back in 1982 attracted 2.6 million in its first weekend. Then Get Out opened around $30 million and ended around $175 million, which was MASSIVE! The studio's last movie to open with more than $50 million was 2016's Star Trek Beyond. Horror movies aren't known for legs but they also aren't known for large budgets. How many of us can honestly say that we'd survive in such a world? A Clover Place? Because we would probably have gone with something like A Cloverfield, Covered with Sand, Because That's Quieter (To Walk On). Perhaps we can all use A Quiet Place as a learning experience.
A very good movie made a very good amount of money this weekend. You have to go see this movie. Well, when you have kids, you immediately get about two years behind.
The political drama, which cost $20 million to acquire and market, tells the story of a 1969 accident involving Massachusetts Sen. I don't know where that started. The nostalgia-fueled trip into the VR world of the Oasis has banked nearly $97 million to date at the domestic box office, with an impressive global box office take of $391.3 million.
In case you're wondering what exactly it would look like if Krasinski and Blunt, a 38-year-old and 35-year-old, respectively, were parents to a 41-year-old (an impossibility, clearly), a fan provided a glimpse. Though moves like this seem desperate, they are also necessary. No stranger to success is that very wife, Emily Blunt. This means that the vast majority of the film is presented in near silence. Like in The Girl on the Train, I'm pretending to be this out-of-control alcoholic. Blunt is fantastic as a mother determined to protect her family while being scared out of her wits. It won't be long before we see her star as an Oscar victor. It might be best to just leave it as it is, much like Jordan Peele's ideas about a sequel to Get Out. The odds for such a victory are slim and the lack of racial/social issues in A Quiet Place will hinder its chances at Oscar glory, even with such great reviews.
It has already topped the U.S. box office, but is unlikely to be great for cinema popcorn sales, as people have been shaming other movie-goers for eating, or even breathing, too loudly during screenings. And I said: "The Office, but don't worry, the American Office".
Meanwhile, the eighth frame of "Black Panther" landed at No. 4 with $8.8 million in 2,747 locations. Perhaps we can call it, A Quiet Workplace.
